Rita Chretien of
British Columbia found on 8th May 2011 by two ATV riders, is in fair condition today after surviving 7 weeks in remote wilderness on little more than trail mix, snow, and prayer, reports the Canadian Press. Her husband, Albert, is still missing. The two set out on a road trip to Nevada in March, but their van got stuck in mud on a national forest road in the mountains. Las Vegas
After three days, Albert set out on foot with a GPS but hasn't been seen since. Rescuers were to resume search for him. Rita, who lost 30 pounds, is at an
hospital and was able to eat a small meal yesterday after three weeks. “You couldn’t have a better Mother’s Day story," says a family friend. "Rita’s children had thought they weren’t going to see their mother alive again." Idaho
Many parts of the world celebrated Mother's Day on 8th May and this is truly a Mother's Day Miracle for Rita and her family.
